flatfold, LK stamp, flowers & others...

Cottage Garden flatfold
Country Cottage Needleworks design
32ct. linen
Crescent color threads

((...click on the pictures to enlarge!))

Stitched and finished this one last July and sent it out the beginning of August so i hope it reach Canada by now and that the reciever likes it. Haven't heard from her yet, probably they are still on holiday. I am sorry the pictures were blurred. I haven't checked it out before sending the piece away.



July block was done which took me nearly a week to complete instead of two evenings. I can only stitch a few minutes in the evening these days...


See what the strong winds had done to my flowers the other day. Took a few pics. a couple of days ago wanted to share how lovely they are and the next day...was ruined!

Only the sedums and the fuschia remains well.

A few said, me and my sister Jane looks alike so i went to look for pictures of us together but i've found only this one which was taken during our last visit together at home last december 2004. All the albums were all brought to the storage room so i couldn't find more as i know we had some during her visit here years ago.



These pictures were taken during one of our outings with some of our family.


Breaking was started...hubby has been stripping off the walls and floor of the playroom, next to the kitchem room. He wanted to find out where the leakage comes from as it sometimes wet and it smells. It sure is getting empty here, both kids computer were packed away and mine will be next this weekend. He will be leaving for sea next week, so just me and the kids to go to the summer house we rented a few days after he leaves. He wanted to ask the owner if the house has access to the internet he wanted to bring his computer over there but we still have to find out later this week. We had booked the place till Christmas so it will be a while before everything goes back to normal!

Thank you all so much for the lovely comments over my last post. I really appreciate them all.

I hope the summer house has internet line so I can read more of your post. :) Lovely family pictures. Grace and Chris were so cute! :) You and your sister do look alike, both are beautiful and sexy. Beautiful flatfold you've make, the pink flowers are lovely and great progress on your LK July block, so whimsical and colorful. I hope you and your husband will solve the water leaking problem. Take care dear.

ps: Congrats to your sister and her family, your new nephew is cute and adorable.

the flat fold is so pretty Mylene!! You do such beautiful work....I sure hope it arrived by now & the new owner has just been to busy to post.
That is too bad about the flowers. We had very strong winds here the other night as well.
Yes, you & Jane do look very similar, but yet different!!!
Sure hope your renovations go quickly & that you do have internet access at the rental home!!!!!

Love the flat fold Mylene! I am sure Suzanne will love it! Hopefully she has received it by now.
Your LK is comming along nicely!
Your flowers are beautiful! My hygrangia has grown big with lots of leaves and no flowers :( Maybe it is just waiting for the cooler temps. I fertilize it so I am at a loss as to why I only had 1 flower head all summer :(

I hope you will have internet at the summer house. I will certainly miss hearing from you!

Hugs

Kathy said...

Your stitching is just beautiful. I love the flatfold.

I do hope you have internet at the cottage. Or that your renovation is done quick and you back home long before Christmas.

Love the flat fold finish and your WIP is coming along beautifully. Wonderful pictures of you and your sister. Hope you manage to sort out the internet problem.

Kay said...

The flatfold is beautiful! I love the July Lizzy Kate as well, those designs are such fun to stitch! I did not realize that you had heavy winds that destroyed some of your plants, that is a shame about that. The pictures of your family and your sister's family is amazing as well, both you and your sister are beautiful women! I hope that all goes well when you move to the summer house soon.

Christine said...

Your flatfold is beautiful, and I love the July stamp.
Such a shame about your poor flowers, but the hydrangea should recover, I live in a very windy place and they thrive here.
Hope your temporary home has an internet connection

Pretty stitching. I love the way you do a flatfold with the narrow back stand.

Always fun to look at your family photos.

Hope the move to the summer house goes well and have a good weekend!

Your finish is so pink and pretty, Mylene--your work is always so lovely!

Your July block is perfect--nothing better than a juicy watermelon in the middle of summer.

You have a very nice looking family!

Tama said...

Oh wow that flatfold is SOOOO pretty! and the stamp! and the flowers! and your family!
everything's pretty except the leakage, lol! Hope you find the problem fast :D

Linda M said...

Your flatfold is gorgeous. To bad your beautiful flowers were ruined. We had to replace a couple of walls in our bathroom because of a shower leak, what a mess it was.

Bev C said...

Hello Mylene,

Congratulations on your flatfold. Hope the renovations all work out. Wind can do a lot of damage to plants, it is a bit like saying "you should have been here last week when everything was flowering"
Hope you get the internet connections worked out.
Happy stitching.
Bev.xoxo

Ack, I hope the summer house has internet!! I think I'd go into withdrawal without my 'fix'. Lovely stitching, Mylene! I especially like the flat fold.
